Small Cake Tins !

Small Cake Tins ! (Free )
Save all your Salmon & Tuna tins the 425 gram ones they make great small cake tins , just make sure you use the right can opener that leaves the rim on the top of the tin, other wise they will be too sharp around the top edge .  I use these for making fruit cakes at Christmas time . Later in the year I will post my fruit cake recipe and photo's of how I decorate them for gift giving they look fabulous and taste fabulous !
Note: Not sure what the tins are lined with ! I do and I would recommend you line your tins with brown paper or glad bake as a safe guard !


  1. What a great idea Sherrie. I would never have thought of this, but it makes great sense.

    I have often thought of making small Christmas cakes for gifts, but after seeing the price of the small cake tins in the kitchen shops, it put me off the idea.

    I will no longer throw out my empty tins.


  2. Wow, you are full of great ideas!!! Thanks so much!

  3. Hi Sherrie, I have used small tins as pastry cutters, but I never thought of using them as cake tins....I am going to have to share this with my readers too, will add a link to here...showing where I found it...Thanks for y our blog.
